Asep, a Jakarta parking-lot attendant, rejoiced in 1998 when Indonesian strongman Suharto was overthrown after three decades of authoritarian rule. But democracy hasn't proved to be quite the boon he and so many other Indonesians expected. In some ways, says Asep, his life is worse now than ever before. Under Suharto, he says, at least he only had to bribe one person—a stadium security officer—for the right to manage the lot at Senayan Stadium. But now, Asep complains, he is routinely approached by people claiming to be policemen, soldiers, sports department officials and political-party officers, all demanding baksheesh of a few thousand rupiah or a pack of cigarettes. These kickbacks often eat away almost half of his meager earnings of $2 a day, but "it's hard not to give," says Asep, "because you don't know anymore who is really in charge."

Back in May 1998 I wrote that “the departure of Suharto as President Indonesia will very probably be followed by the emergence of new political forces and the disappearance or decline of old established forces.” I had no inkling at that time that there would be 98 political parties trying to win the trust of the people and competing for seats at the national, provincial, and district parliaments. I also had no foreboding that the competition for seats in the executive offices would so truculent and create the culture of “money politics.” I was also entirely unprepared for a new political game that at the end made a winner become the big loser, while a collection of losers become the winner.
